Hurtful words

For FOWC: Innocuous, I wrote an etheree (these are quite fun to write). This is not about anything in particular, just about how people never know how their words might affect someone, in a positive or a detrimental way.


One
Insult
Sticks in, not
Innocuous:
You have forgotten
Those words by dinnertime,
But I remember for years
The piercing pain inside my heart,
The horribly flippant betrayal —
You stay unaffected, oblivious.
